Project Description

Tyax Wilderness Resort & Spa

In 2010, Murphy Construction was contracted to renovate all existing areas of this unique log structure; as well as adding a luxurious spa facility with a yoga and workout room. This multi-million dollar renovation was a design-build in conjunction with a team of consultants and included extensive renovations to all guest rooms – complete with new exterior log post and beam deck structures. The main entrance, dining and bar areas were also fully renovated from floor to ceiling. On a technical side, all electrical, mechanical and code upgrades were completed throughout the entire lodge.

In April 2012 we also restored the exterior log structure, removed the stucco and replaced with stone veneer, installed a new commercial hot tub; complete with decking and a redesign to the surrounding landscape. MCC also performed a complete electrical and lift station upgrade to the existing service. Discussions for future work at Tyax are ongoing including the build of a new staff accommodation, water treatment plant and heli-building.

Kind Words:

Murphy Construction Corp. was engaged in fall 2010,  to conduct a major overhaul of our commercial operation. The value of this work was approximately 3.8 million dollars.

During the project Murphy Construction Corp. exhibited extensive knowledge in dealing with the process and logistics involved in a commercial project.  They provided us with clear and concise budgets and identified risks to the project. They were always professional in their interactions with local jurisdictions and consultants whilst maintaining project requirements.  They offered cost effective and creative solutions throughout the project.

I am pleased to say the project was completed on time and on budget. We are currently planning further enhancements and envelope remediation to our facility and are very happy with the pre­ construction services and value engineering Murphy Construction Corp. is bringing to the table.

In closing I would whole-heartedly recommend Murphy Construction Corp. for any large-scale commercial construction project.  Their honesty, integrity and professionalism will enable them to deliver a product that will always represent their clients’ best interests.
